in thread Thoughts on replacing -> with .

Well, I guess that's an argument for the colon over the dot, although I'm not sure it's really a good idea to change this at all.

One change that might, maybe, make sense would be to allow Unicode operators:

use utf8;
use Something;
my $obj = Something→new(ARG⇒'value');
I'm not sure, but it might be reasonable, and people could have their editors rewrite things or bind a key, and it would take less space in listings. But not if it means that -> and => would then not work.
